From Rare Tea Company

Unique English grown Olive Leaf Tea.
Grown in Sussex on the only commercial olive grove in Britain.
A gentle infusion with smooth honey and butter flavours.

Olives have been cultivated around the world for 5,000 years, but never commercially in the UK until now. The olive grove at Southdown Trees in Sussex is the first and only of its type in the UK.

The leaves are handpicked from the tree, carefully washed, quickly air-dried, then left to cure with the absence of sunlight.

Reaserch suggests that drinking Olive Leaf Tea can help to lower both colesterol and blood pressure and maintain a healthy immune system.

Take a good pinch of leaves and place them into freshly boiled water. The leaves take a while to infuse, leave from five to fifteen minutes. Strain and enjoy or refrigerate for an equally lovely iced tea.

At Rare Tea HQ we really enjoy this tea with Pan con Tomate (fresh tomatoes with oil and garlic on toast). Infact many Mediterranean flavours are a perfect match.

These leaves remind me of Bay Leaves :)

There isn’t much smell to it but the taste is very unique. It’s VERY mellow and reminiscent of the grapeseed oil I sell, more specifically the lemon flavored grapeseed oil.

I think this would pair well with anything Italian or Greek :)
Very interesting cuppa!

The photo for this tea … really is how this tea looks. The leaves are large and whole like that. Not crumbled or broken or in a sachet or teabag. Loose.

Sweet with a flavor that’s reminiscent of a light green tea. It’s a little lighter in flavor and texture and a little sweeter than most green teas, but it’s similar to that kind of taste. This is what I’d recommend to someone who loves green tea but needs to cut back on the caffeine. Drinking this will help you not miss the green tea so much.

Sweet, notes of savory (and be sure to check out the recipe link on the full-length review for this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/06/17/english-olive-leaf-tea-from-rare-tea-co/ – it sounds so yummy!)

A very enjoyable tisane.
